Cooper: Secretary Clinton do you regret your vote on The Patriot Act? Clinton: No, I don't. I think that it was necessary to make sure that we were able after 9/11 to put in place the security that we needed, and it is true that it did require that there be a process. What happened, however, is that the bush administration began to chip away at that process and I began to speak out about their use of warrantless surveillance and the other behavior that they engaged in. we always have to keep the balance of civil liberties, privacy and security. It’s not easy in a democracy but we have to keep it in mind.

Cooper: Senator Clinton. Hero or a traitor? Clinton: He broke the laws of the United States. He could have been a whistleblower, he could have gotten all the protections of being a whistleblower . He could have raised all the issues that he has raised and I think there would have been a positive response to that. Cooper: Should he do jail time? Clinton: In addition, he stole very important information that has unfortunately fallen into a lot of the wrong hands. So I don't think he should be brought home without facing the music.
